Yelawolf won’t exploit skateboarding

Yelawolf has spoken about his love of skateboarding but has assured both fans and skaters alike that he won’t be exploiting it.

Whilst he has never shied away from being a skater nor ever held himself back from professing his love for a good schralp, he recently said in an interview that he didn’t want to make tracks specifically about skating, as Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell have done in the past. He explained:

“It’s something I do, it’s something that I love doing, but it’s nothing that I’d ever want to exploit. I think skateboarders respect that, and I think that’s why I’ve been embraced within that culture, because I don’t want to write records about skateboarding. I don’t think it’s necessary, I don’t think it’s cool.”

You can see him on a board in the video below, for the remix of I Wish, which also sees him wearing arguably the best sweatshirt of all time.
